Visitor Policy

Smilow Cancer Hospital's commitment to patient centered care remains our priority. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and for the safety of our patients and staff, one visitor per patient per day is allowed. Visitors must show proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID-19, proof of a negative PCR test taken within the last 72 hours, or a positive test in the past 90 days but greater than 10 days since positive result. Swapping/switching is not allowed, although patients may have a different visitor each day.

Effective Tuesday, February 8, one visitor per patient will be allowed at ambulatory locations. Visitors do not need to show vaccination proof.

Exceptions can be made for:
• Patients that are at end-of-life
• Exceptions will also be made for patients with disabilities who may need a support person with them for support.

Thank you for your help in reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19 in our communities.
